A bewitching time capsule that transports us to late 80s China, and to turn-of-the-century video games.

5.9 / 10.0
Kyle Hilliard

Rejoining Ryo Hazuki's quest to avenge his father is exciting, but Shenmue 3 feels like a game that has ignored the innovation and progress of the last 20 years of video game development.

A seamless continuation of the series that makes up for its limitations with pure heart. It's like Ryo never left us.

A literal dream come true for fans and while most others will struggle to understand the appeal it's impossible not to admire Yu Suzuki's vision and tenacity in not only making the game but making it his way.
